    Vincent Beaurin's oeuvre is a sensitive and perceptible exploration of forms and their incorporation in space, "landscape-forms" in which he sets to work on their subtle variations of colours, surfaces and materials with all the precision of an engraver. Each one of his propositions is like "giving formal notice" to forms. What does this mean? It means that the artist questions the appropriateness of the forms he produces by sizing up their boundaries, their limits, and their inflection points: gauging how far it is possible to go to relieve the form of any superficial encumbering clutter while at the same time optimizing its presence in the place it occupies. Producing not objects but places for the gaze to inhabit; conceiving form not as one more form (an artefact) but as a sign in place (a punctuation mark). Through this poetics which involves limits and atmospheric hues, this oeuvre stands apart from the modernist legacy of early abstraction, while linking up with a longer-term history which, from Goethe to Kandinsky, has witnessed the assertion of a way of thinking about form in the process of revealing itself, a "morphology". For the forms Vincent Beaurin summons are above all places in which the visible gestates, places where a presence manifests itself which is the sign of a fullness in the offing.
